Announcement    2020 - Focusing on developing and producing quality face masks - made to last with love and attention to detail! Why are these priced higher than most? There are many reasons, but most importantly because of the ties. The elastic used in most masks has not been manufactured to withstand the wear that is being put upon it through daily wear and sweat, not protected through a fabric casing, and then washed daily in hot water. The ties are time consuming to make and require more fabric than the mask itself. But my goal is to create long lasting masks, so I have chosen a better quality of construction. I hope you will agree when you receive yours and wear it!

Artist and Maker

Artist, maker, collector, researcher – love of old things, especially fabrics and textiles and remnants of domesticity from women’s lived lives. Quilts and clothes and shoes and bags and odd bits of embroidery and cookbooks with notes in the margins.

For my making, quality is what matters to me most, in both design and materials. My masks are designed for a snug seal around the face, along with comfort and ability to withstand being washed as many times as they are worn. And of course, for attractiveness and beauty wherever possible! Masks are not returnable for hygenic reasons, but I do want to know if you have any recommendations for improving the quality and comfort. Custom orders would be considered but only if at least four masks are ordered – they don’t need to all be the same fabric, but there must be an order made of at least four masks to make a custom order.
